Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has cast aspersions on Raila Odinga’s intentions after the handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Through his social media pages, Kuria opined that in Kenya handshakes often occur when the incumbent President is entering his final term and there is one common face, ODM leader Raila Odinga.

He accused the former Prime Minister of tactfully positioning himself to ensure he becomes part of the next government.

“Handshake is a phenomenon that occurs in Multiparty Kenya every time an incumbent President enters his final term.

“It manifests itself by one Raila Odinga moving to work with the exiting President with a view to succeeding him,” he said.

Adding: “It started after 1997 elections through the NDP-KANU merger as Moi entered his final term. As Kibaki entered his final term after 2007 General Elections it reinvented itself through the Grand Coalition Government and the 2010 Referendum.”

Kuria took a swipe at Odinga saying he used the same trick on Uhuru as Jubilee entered its second term and disguised it as the BBI.

The lawmaker warned Raila that he would fail in his 2022 bid and he should probably think of another handshake in 2028 as he attempts to succeed William Ruto in 2032.

“It entered its third decade as Uhuru Kenyatta entered his final term after the 2017 General Elections this time through the March 9, 2018 handshake and the BBI.

“Statisticians and Meteorologists predict that the next Handshake will occur around 2028 when Raila Odinga will enter into a pact with William Ruto who will be on his last term as Raila prepares for his 5th Presidential bid in 2032,” he said.
